Operation Alpha Centauri by Temiree Operation Alpha Centauri by Temiree
***DOWNLOAD FOR FULL RESOLUTION***

My entry for Anthro Challenge, with the theme of "star." BIG thanks to ^Katmomma for letting me enter this a little bit past the submission date. I really appreciate it! :hug:

I suppose it's a literal interpretation of the theme, but it's an excuse for me to do space themed anthro art. ;) This was quite challenging for me, lighting and composition-wise mainly. For astronomy nerds, yeah Alpha Centauri is a binary star system. I just chose to hide Centauri B from this picture. =P

I suppose I should give you guys a little story behind this picture. It is the year 2852, and the fox you see here is a worker on one of the moons orbiting the planet Kleitos, a rocky planet with two moons. Kleitos is 1.6 earth masses, and both moons are somewhat larger than Earth's moon. What has attracted this worker (among many more) is the substance you see covering the moon, which they nicknamed Stellar Snow. It's not snow exactly, it's melting point is 341ºC and the moon's temperature is rather pleasant. However when melted and cooled, it forms a substance like metal, however 15x stronger than titanium. It's currently being used for space ships to protect against attacks and stellar debris.

Yeah, I'm a nerd. :B But I like stories behind sci-fi related art.

Operation Alpha Centauri by *Temiree is a beautifully rendered illustration. Great balance an alluring emphasis to the scenery make this one a standout. To quote Katmomma: ""This is just downright f*cking amazing, Temiree, you've done it again, dude!" ( Suggested by inuzaka and Featured by savagebinn )
